With all the buzz over the Snow White DVD, I thought it would be an appropriate time to post a poll on this.

Feel free to post your top 10, top 5 or just your favorite. But remember that this poll is about the 40 (41 if you count the infamous Song of the South) animated films done by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released theatrically. The works of other divisions of the Disney studio (the Pixar films, the straight-to-video sequels, the films based on animated series like Goof Troop, Doug and Recess, etc.) do not count in this case.

Here's my current top 10:

1. Beauty and the Beast
2. The Lion King
3. Fantasia
4. Pinocchio
5. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
6. The Little Mermaid
7. Bambi
8. Aladdin
9. Tarzan
10. The Jungle Book

I am definitely a fan of the recent stuff, as I have not seen a lot of the older stuff...

1) The Hunchback of Notre Dame
2) Beauty and the Beast
3) Aladdin

I rarely see anyone like my Number 1, but it is my favorite.

An interesting question...see any similiarities?


Little Mermaid (1) = Pocahontas (5)
Beauty and the Beast (2) = Hunchback of Notre Dame (6)
Aladdin (3) = Hercules (7)
Lion King (4) = Tarzan (8)


I've always wondered if Disney had 4-year development cycles for their movies?

Just curious Posted Image

Take care,
Chuck

He had a plan. Maybe you just didn't see it 'til it hit you between the eyes. But, it started to make sense... in a Tyler sort of way. No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide.

Hey buddy...did you just see a real bright light?

Dumbo and Pinocchio top my list. As for ranking the rest, it's been a while, so I'd have to see them again.

A while back I did a Disney films tournament here. Interestingly, nobody has yet mentioned the eventual winner of that tourney as one of their favourites--Sleeping Beauty. I always knew that result was bogus. Posted Image

I was thinking the same thing. I read these first few posts and was absolutely shocked that no one picked Sleeping Beauty, which I think is head and shoulders above any other Disney cartoon. A fairly distant second is Cinderella, which also has not been mentioned. Those are the only two that I'm really wild about.

I guess I'm out of step with the Disney crowd.

I think Hunchback is the most underrated of all the Disney films. The only reason it's not in my top 10 is because the gargoyles go over-the-top a few too many times.


As for Sleeping Beauty... it is one of the most beautifully animated of the Disney films, but the story pales compared to the similar Snow White. I still like the film a lot, though, especially the climactic fight with Maleficent and the "Once Upon a Dream" sequence.

There's actually a split in my appreciation: the one's I consider "New Age" Disney Classics and "Classic" Disney Classics.

New Age top three:

Beauty and the Beast
The Lion King
Aladdin



Classic top six:

Fantasia
Snow White etc.
Cinderella
Peter Pan
Little Mermaid
Jungle Book


Both could easily have been "top many more", and also, I'm not exactly sure about the order Posted Image.

1. Pinocchio -- It isn't even my favorite Disney film but I just can't get over the amazing background art.

2. Snow White -- I was worried this one wouldn't hold up well after not having seen it for decades. The new DVD has put my fears to rest.

3. The Jungle Book -- If I'm not mistaken this was the last feature that Uncle Walt had a hand in creating.

4. Beauty & The Beast -- Reignited my interest in animated films.

5. Robin Hood -- I was seriously into this movie as a kid and still enjoy it.

1. Aladdin
2. Sword in the Stone
3. Robin Hood
4. Atlantis
5. The Emperor's New Groove
6. The Lion King
7. Return of Jafar
8. Aladdin and the King of Theives
9. Alice in Wonderland
10. A Bug's Life


I really have no organization for those movies. But those are as close to my top 10 favorite Disney titles. But there are so many of them that are just outstanding. It's really hard to choose.

My picks:

Fantasia
Snow White
Song of the South


It's a real shame some people hesitate to refer Song of the South as a "real" Disney film. No thanks to Mr. Eisner, of course. This may not agree with everyone, but I think Beauty and the Beast is a little overrated.

Snow White, Lion King and Fantasia, but in all fairness it has been too long since I have seen some of the classics to make this fair.
For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.
